The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
League meetings will focus on seven-county issues
Metro issues are front and center at the legislature this session, says League of Women Voters member Karen Schaffer. She will present recent developments on issues involving the Metropolitan Council and how the League's regional watchdog group, the Council of Metropolitan Area Leagues (CMAL) is keeping the public informed. Current issues concern transportation, regional parks, housing, water and sewer, and the structure of the Metropolitan Council itself.
The March 17th meeting will be at the little Venetian Restaurant, 2900 Rice Street, Little Canada. A social hour will begin at 5:30 pm with the opportunity to order from the menu. The program will begin at 7:00 pm. Call Stephanie DeBenedet at 651-483-1006 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a dinner reservation.
